Saddest Moby Songs

Moby has something unique about his songs, where you feel good to feel sad. And this is his saddest.

The Top Ten

1 Porcelain

The song has sad lyrics and the video is sad too

2 Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad?

Every time I hear this song I cry. It makes me reflect. It is a beautiful song

I love this song. The funny thing is, is that I didn't know it was Moby for a long time after I'd heard it and it stuck in my head.
"Why does my heart feel so bad? " says it all really.
I'll be sure to check out the other Moby songs listed. - Britgirl

3 The Sky Is Broken

If you don't feel sad as you play this, you don't have eardrums - PositronWildhawk

4 Natural Blues

I don't think that Natural Blues should be above things like When it's cold I'd like to the but it does have a melancholic vibe.

I think "Don't nobody know my trouble but God? " tells one enough. - PositronWildhawk

5 Extreme Ways

Hi PositronWildhawk. Well, you already know how I feel about this glorious song. - Britgirl

6 Whispering Wind

Whispering Wind was the first Moby song I really listened to, on the recommendation of PositronWildhawk. I came away deeply moved. Thank-you, Positron. - PetSounds

One of his most underrated, if you ask yours truly - PositronWildhawk

7 When It's Cold I'd Like to Die

An absolutely beautiful - yet heartbreaking piece of music. It gives me a feeling of nostalgia about the times gone and the people lost. It reminds me of how fast the world and everyone in it has moved on - and makes me question if I've truly moved on with it. With Goese's haunting vocals and Moby's blissful instrumental, 'When It's Cold I'd Like to Die', in my opinion, is definitely Moby's most emotional piece of music to date. I always like to see this song as Moby's take on Sigur Ros.

Probably the saddest song in the whole genre. - Slipperyjack40

It makes me feel like I am going to die

8 In This World

What's sadder still is the official music video. Heartbreaking. - PositronWildhawk

9 Mistake
10 Slipping Away

The Contenders

11 Sleep Alone
12 Everloving

This is such a beautiful song! I don't know if I would call it depressing, it just sounds more like a love song. Easily one of my favorites. - Slipperyjack40

13 Wait for Me

You think this is sad? Wait till' you watch the video

14 18
15 This Wild Darkness

The whole album is very sad and depressive. I want all the songs on it to be on this list. This is my favorite from EWBaNH.

16 The Day
17 Isolate

Instrumental, actually. But a very haunting sound. - PositronWildhawk

18 First Cool Hive

I'm sorry but I don't see it. This song just isn't sad at all to me. Maybe it's because I've heard Wait For Me and Destroyed.

19 Sunday (The Day Before My Birthday)

Money's birthday is on September 11, I feel bad for the poor guy, who wants their birthday ion 9/11?

20 The Sorrow Tree

I don't know if anyone feels the same way but it hurts me to listen to this song. Probably because it sounds so sad!

21 Pale Horses

The effect this song has on me lasts all day! I feel great sorrow from it and I can only get so much of it.

22 Raining Again

Very true. I love this song, but it is a sad one. - PositronWildhawk

23 At Least We Tried
24 When You Are Old
25 The Last Day

This gives me the chills every time. "He only just discovered the sun on the last day." So melancholic and disturbing but I love it!

26 Shot in the Back of the Head
27 Guitar Flute & String

Absolutely beautiful

28 The Middle is Gone

Too me, this is one of the most depressive songs I've ever heard in my life! Should be top, way sadder than Porcelain.
